Carlos Sainz Crash in Dakar 2009
Carlos Sainz has abandoned the race.
The leader of the general standings, Spaniard Carlos Sainz (VW) is said to have careered into a ravine after 79 km of the days special stage. It appears that his co-pilot, Frenchman Michel has received a shoulder injury and has been evacuated to the bivouac for medical attention... This would mean withdrawal from the race for the Spaniard, who has won 6 special stages out of the 10 already completed.
